OF THE YEAR
This modern bathroom is fitted with a variety
of features and luxuries not normally seen in an
everyday ensuite. Designed by Paul Hutchison,
with Victorian company Bubble Bathroom, this
bathroom is the winner of the HIA-Caroma Dorf
Australian bathroom designer of the year.
The clients requested an ensuite closer to the
main bedroom so they wouldn't have to cross the
hallway to the existing bathroom.
The solution was the transformation of an
existing bedroom into an oversized ensuite. The
size of the ensuite allowed Paul to incorporate
additional features, including a 106cm LG plasma
The winning project features in-mirror storage,
overhead low voltage lights, two vanity bowls, two
walk-in-wardrobes, a double shower, a bidet and
toilet, spa bath and incandescent side lighting.
The sleek design features tiling that complements
the veneer tones used in the vanity, providing an
overall rustic feel.
Materials used: American Oak veneer cabinetry;
porcelain delicate beige polished floor and wall
tiles; Corten rust porcelain feature tiles; Paco
Jaansen Carli basins; Dolce Vito Lago spa; Pozzi
Easy toilet suite and Hansa Murano tapware.
BATHROOM PROJECT OF THE YEAR
The talented duo of Paul Hutchison and Bubbles Bathrooms was also awarded
with the HIA-Caroma Australian bathroom project of the year award.
The design had to convert a bedroom with a traditional fireplace into a
bathroom and incorporate the clients' lifestyle by being modern, while not a ecting
the ambience of the old terrace house.
Earthy warm tones were used throughout the design and complement the
Victorian charm of the fireplace and large plaster cornices.
The freestanding egg-shaped stone bath is the focal point of the bathroom
and is positioned in front of the fireplace. The bathroom has separate vanities,
a double shower and wiring for an iPod docking station and mini speakers, turning
the bathroom into a private sanctuary.
Materials used: Custom-made vinyl wrap cabinets in Wilsonart shadow;
CaesarStone benchtops in mink; custom-made composite stone basins; UESS
floor and wall tiles in to ee; D38 tapware; Pozzi Easy toilet and bide; custom-made
composite stone bath.
